Police report that up to 20 cars may have been stolen from Volvo's Torslanda plant in Gothenburg on Thursday night. There is still some uncertainty as to the number of vehicles removed from the enclosure.


"It was X number of cars. It could have been 5, 10 or 20," said police spokesman Göran Andreasson.

Initial reports suggest that the thieves cut a hole in the fence around the enclosure before driving the vehicles away. The cars might then have been loaded onto a trailer and driven out of the country.

Police in the Västra Götaland and Halland regions are leading the search for the missing cars.

Since nobody is quite sure how many cars were taken, it is difficult to estimate the value of the stolen goods.

"But if each car is worth 300,000 kronor, it soon amounts to several million," said Andreasson.
